When You’re Sick… You Need SOUP!

So if you follow me on social media, you know I’ve been sick since last Thursday. Well, almost a week later and I’m still under the weather. Today was my first day back to work and the only thing I could imagine for lunch was soup.

Back in the day (a few years ago) there was a ZOUP directly across from my office, which I loved! I’d go at least once a week but it’s been gone for quite sometime. Since it’s departure the only place I’ve gone for soup is Heinens. Today I didn’t feel like walking that far and I wanted to try something new.

It just so happens that last week, I ran into someone I love to see, Marlene Philiips! She is the Executive Assistant to someone I truly admire Albert Ratner. They are honestly two of the sweetest people you will ever meet, pure hearts of gold! Anywho- after running into each other, Marlene spent sometime on my blog and sent over a few places for me to consider visiting. This place in particular was where she said she found her favorite comfort food!

I knew it was located in Tower City but I wasn’t sure where. My journey begin in the food court but it wasn’t there, I googled it again and realized from a picture on yelp, it was actually it’s own store. Lo and Behold, it was in the old Panera Bread. I walk in and was busy. A few people sitting down, but mostly take out orders. I was worried, I had so many questions I didn’t want to stop the flow of the line. I pranced over the hanging menu, so many soup options, I didn’t know which to try. I politely asked if I can try a few samples and the cashier (who was friendly as ever)  said yes. Two people in line start talking to me. One says try them all (which I refused to do lol) and another says you will love the wild rice soup, which another passer byer agreed. I asked for a sample and I was very happy.

I also tried the chicken noodle soup and another. Both great but the chicken wild rice had won my heart. I went back to the cashier and ordered a bowl. Convinced that wouldn’t be enough, I did as others before me had, and ordered a salad to go with my soup. I did the regular size caeasr salad. While waiting I ran into someone I interned with many years ago at ESPN Cleveland. She told me she comes here all the time and loves the food. Within a few minutes my order was up at the soup station, then a few seconds my salad was ready at a different pick up counter. At first I was confused, but I soon understood soups were handled by one person, and then sandwiches and salads by a few people close by.

The place was very spacious. There were tons of booths, tables and high-top tables all available to sit down and eat. I opted to go back to my office instead, but told myself I’d definitely come back and bring a book. It was one of those types of places, where you could come sit and get away from everyone and actually enjoy your meal without interruptions. I never liked to eat alone, but the older I get the more I find it rather refreshing.

The food was great! I was also informed that the soup was not only homemade but made fresh every day. I only spent $9.99 total! So a penny under my allotted $10 lunch. It was literally just what I needed to get through the day. Upon leaving I grabbed a menu and found out they are open for breakfast and do catering for large parties. This place, like many downtown has business hours. They are open from 9am -5pm Monday through Friday, and Saturdays they are open from 11am to 5pm. So if you are ever walking through Tower City or downtown looking for a good soup… head over to Susy’s Soups and tell them you read about them on #CourtneyCoversCleveland

  • Now I may not believe (in my heart lol) that we are ranked 48 out of 50 but what I do believe is that CLEVELAND has to do a better job (like Marsha who I love Mockabee, says in this article) in SUPPORTING LOCAL BUSINESSES! That’s where we fall short and other cities excel! .
.

This is why I created #courtneycoverscleveland ! The idea is to promote and support what’s here! We will never get ahead if we don’t learn to support each other.
  • Sunday evening I attended the Symphony of Pink and Green Cotillion! It brought back soooo many great memories from when I was an debutante in the first AKA cotillion in 2003. I remember the workshops and community service, the father daughter waltz’s and hilarious dance classes with my escort. It’s an experience every girl should have! I can’t wait for my Codi Lynn to take part. So glad to see my little cousin Jenesis as an APPLE! .

Parents invest in your daughters! Give them experiences that will create lifelong memories and help them grow and mature as young ladies! #courtneycoverscleveland
  • Spent Martin Luther King Jr. Day at the Children’s Museum making memories with #BryceCameron I had a million reasons why I needed to stay home but I literally saw the @shondarhimes book I just finished on my table and said YES! It was the best decision I could’ve made because I committed to spending more one on one time with each of my children. Bryce had the best time ever! This article will be up soon because we had sooo much fun and it’s an easy inexpensive trip for parents to enjoy with their kids! OHHH and yes I’m rocking my OBAMA hoody because I what better  day than today to rock it! #courtneycoverscleveland
  • I was literally in New Orleans last weekend and had Papa John's Pizza! I saw this commercial and it has completely changed my way of thinking! As a local blogger in Cleveland, everything I do is to promote the city and hope to make an impact in the community. Those who follow me understand how passionate I am about  supporting small businesses. Prior to this commercial I would have never included restaurant chains, however after watching this now I will!
.
Hats off to Herb and Kenyatta, African-American franchisees in New Orleans, for making a difference in their community, and to Papa John's for sharing their story. The commercial shows the power and impact that small businesses can have on our local communities.

I'm looking for Cleveland franchise owners! I want to meet you and I want to promote and support your business!  #BetterTogether #courtneycoverscleveland #sponsored
  • I truly believe in supporting great #Cleveland businesses! I couldn’t let today’s special (although I should be on a diet) pass me by... this is hands down a #courtneycoverscleveland Favorite!

I’ve honestly been supporting @blackboxfix @latoya_lavise since 2014 when my then fiancé and I would eat Neveah. If you scroll to the right you will see our first meal back in the states after our honeymoon was at Neveah- we craved it after being in St. Lucia for a week! I actually ordered this same exact meal, my absolute favorite thing to order the buffalo fries! If you haven’t had them they are worth every penny and amazingly delicious (and did I mention reasonable? they cost $12) so if you’re ever in legacy village and want to support a local business choose #TheBlackboxFix they have great options !  #courtneycoversclevelandquickie .

He sat in the chair like a big boy and both him and his barber told me to go away LOL! People always ask who cuts his hair so head over to #Courtneycoverscleveland to read about Cleveland’s Premier Barber, my friend, the busy and always booked @urfavbarber !
